It’s great that Apple has finally updated its iOS app for App Store to provide this basic protection for the entire site. But the work isn’t over yet. SSL Labs, a report card system from security firm Qualys that rates the quality of websites’ HTTPS protections, gives Apple’s App Store a failing grade. iOS users shouldn’t worry too much, since the weaknesses Qualys is detecting aren’t easy for the average hacker to exploit. Still, it shows Apple engineers still have work to do to make its customers safe.
It’s insane that this wasn’t implemented on day one.
